SpaceX Starship SN10 rocket photographed at Boca Chica launchpad

  • February 28, 2021

When the SN9 launched on February 2 following weeks of delays, it ended in disaster for the company.

The rocket successfully cruised at an altitude of 10 kilometres, but as SN9 approached the landing pad, one of its engines failed to ignite and the rocket struggled to control its speed.

Once it hit the ground, the spacecraft exploded into a huge ball of flames.

The SN9’s predecessor, the SN8, suffered a similar fate on its attempted land in December.
